Dodging for Diabetes- Bethesda, MD

For the second year in a row I got to volunteer at Dodging for Diabetes, an event that raises over $6,000 every year for the Joslin Diabetes Center. Congratulations to the first place team Demolition, and the second place team Dance Party Vietnam. The spirit prize winner this year was Dance Party Vietnam and spirit prize runner up was Little Neighbors in Real Life.

Just about everyone will be touched by diabetes in some way during their lifetime. More than 20 million people in the U.S. have diabetes and 50 percent of Americans are at risk for the disease. Despite these staggering statistics, there’s reason to be hopeful. Joslin Diabetes Center has evolved to meet the ever-changing challenges of diabetes amid the dynamic landscape of science, technology and medicine. Joslin discovers, creates and distributes new knowledge about diabetes prevention and treatment options – expanding worldwide efforts to combat this disease. The High Hopes Fund generates critical resources to support these multi-dimensional efforts.

It was a lot of fun and I loved watching all the dodgeball games! Over 26 teams participated and it was really great to see so many people supporting this important cause- can’t wait until next year!
